AYOS Septembers Schnibbles......Mercie

So this was an AWESOME and very FUN quilt to make!  The pattern Called "Mercie" and you can find it here on Carrie's shop .   I was SO VERY FORTUNATE to WIN the way to Awesome ruler
Fit to be Quarter 6.5 Ruler from Carrie.  I have to tell you it made this quilt go as slick as can be!!!!  I did do two blogs without the ruler to see how it came together, Very simple.  This is a pattern you want to try!!! 

Okay so Here is my version...I used "Give Thanks" Charm packs by Sandy Garvis for Moda.  Its very Thanksgivineee, is that even a word?  LOL don't know but I will use it.  I wanted to make a runner to put on my table for Thanksgiving.  I have been wanting to do one for years but never did make it by the time Tgiving came around.  So this AYOS has gotten me to make what I have wanted in the past!
People always ask me, "what are you making it for"  I have been replying, "for me."  I have for years given away or sold all the projects I made.  If you walked into my house you would never know a quilter lived here....but that is changing and BIG TIME!!!!  I am spoiling myself.  And its about time I do!  Here's the quilt top, Enjoy!   P.S.  My machine broke right after I finished the borders so I couldn't complete it to the finish.  I hope to have it back by the end of the week.  I will post a picture of it quilted.  Thanks for stopping by!
